As the minority groups throughout the country expand and take a proactive role in politics, the Republican party are compelled to look at ways they can appeal to minority voters and beef up the competition.
“Our party needs to realize that it’s too old and too white and too male and it needs to figure out how to catch up with the demographics of the country before it’s too late,’ said Al Cardenas, the head of the American Conservative Union and a longtime GOP leader.”
“Our party needs a lot of work to do if we expect to be competitive in the near future.”
“Sen. Marco Rubio, a Republican in Florida and possible 2016 presidential candidate, added: ‘The conservative movement should have particular appeal to people in minority and immigrant communities who are trying to make it, and Republicans need to work harder than ever to communicate our beliefs to them.”
